Portland Leadership Institute - Nourish the Leader Within You
What's a Leader?    Can You Define Leadership?
Alan's recovery from Open Heart Surgery is nearly complete.  Yes, his minor heart attack was April 2, and his surgery (quadruple bypass) was April 10.  Cardio Rehab has been great, and he is looking forward to running again while ripping through the treadmill.

He was honored by SHRM to receive its first Advisor Impact Award for his continuing effect on students since his Portland State career began in 1980. 

Students, alumni, private corporations, and professional associations secretly raised more than $60,000 to name a room for him in the new Karl Miller Center, the School of Business Building.

He presents twice at SHRM 2018:
June 18:  "Mentoring Millennials:  Microfeedback, Reverse and Group Mentoring, and ....."
June 19:  "So You Think You Know Millennials.....Think Again," on the SmartStage


Most Leadership web sites attempt to define Leadership with long flowery theoretical language.  At the Portland Leadership Institute we prefer to rely on the famous quote of Justice Potter Stewart:  "I know it when I see it." 
The Portland Leadership Institute grows leaders.  We'll take who you are today, what you do now, and work with you to bring out your best.
